This Homemade Moose Munch Caramel Popcorn tastes even better than the original! So light, crisp, & buttery, with tender nuts and a hint of chocolate. This will be your favorite Caramel Popcorn Recipe.
Looking for a delicious and tasty snack? At our house we love popcorn. We eat it quite often with just butter and salt, but sometimes it is fun to take your popcorn game up a notch or two. On special occasions we like to make our favorite Homemade Moose Munch.
If you haven’t heard of Moose Munch, it is a caramel popcorn recipe with added nuts and a drizzle of chocolate. It’s pretty fancy and makes a great treat for a group of people. I have also made some and given it away as a gift for friends and family!
MOOSE MUNCH RECIPE
Moose Munch Caramel Popcorn Recipe
- 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 cup of pecans
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup of peanuts
- 2 cups brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup light Karo syrup
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips melted
Pop 3/4 cup unpopped popcorn, remove any unpopped kernels. Mix in your pecans and almonds and set aside.
In a medium saucepan melt your butter, then add the brown sugar and light Karo syrup.
Stir together and bring to boil for five minutes.
Remove from the stove and immediately stir in the baking soda, vanilla and salt.
Stir until well combined and smooth.
Pour the hot caramel over the popcorn and nuts in a large bowl and mix until the popcorn and nuts are well coated.
Separate into two sheet pans and bake in a 200° oven for one hour stirring every 15 minutes. *I line my baking sheets with a Silicon Baking Mat which allows the melted chocolate to come off the sheet pan easily and not stick to the pan.
After baking the popcorn, drizzle the melted chocolate chips over one of the pans of popcorn and let it sit until the chocolate has hardened. *To speed it up, you can place it in the freezer or the refrigerator.
Break up the popcorn and mix it together in a large bowl!
Serve and enjoy!
